REHABILITATION AND RECONVERSION OF AN OLD CANNING FACTORY – “FÁBRICA DE FERRAGUDO”
Instituto Superior Manuel Teixeira Gomes

“Fábrica De Ferragudo”
This Masters dissertation in Architecture consists in the development of a Rehabilitation and Reconversion Project of an old canning factory (example of typology of a fish canning factory from early twentieth century) which is degraded, located in Ferragudo.
This paper intends to demonstrate the possibility to design, while respecting the memory space and exploring the architectural process of this type of intervention.
In this factory nucleus historical, architectural values as well as spatial and physical potentialities were detected such as: being located near the Arade river; almost total absence of urban limits; existence of large interior spaces and two large patios.
The cultural program emerges as a coherent approach to this industrial complex, allowing the creation of multipurpose spaces, leisure and commerce.
The pre-existing space appropriation is synonymous of inner spatial wealth, where the new is combined with memory.
The new volumes of contemporary language differ from pre-existing ones, as this project, while preserving the memory of the place, also reflects a new image and identity.
